My shop at Shivnagar had closed during Covid time. Then we were at home and greatly troubled about what to do. Then a friend gave the suggestion that you could take a loan from the PMEGP scheme. We approached the government authorities and got a positive response. So we got some finance from them and some from my friends. Now we are making chappals in Udhampur and everything is going fine. We have 3-4 people working for us, some are full time and others are working part-time. During Covid, the scheme provided online training. I am grateful that because of the government scheme I am able to earn my livelihood. The chappal factory owner’s wife was also happy that the chappal making unit was going ahead at a good pace. During Covid they lost business but now all the members work to contribute in chappal making which is fetching them business.
